Hey everyone, I'm brand new to the Paleo lifestyle but it absolutely intrigues me! In other words - I'm on board :) Where is good place to start in terms of information? Preferably, a YouTube channel...but a book would be fine.

Get one of these books:
- Practical Paleo by Dianne Sanfilippo - (if you get this, but it as a dead-tree paper version)
- Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf
- Perfect Health Diet by Paul and Shu Jing Jaminet
- The Primal Blueprint by Mark Sisson
- The Paleo Code by Chris Kresser
- Primal Body Primal Mind by Nora Gedgaudas
- The Paleo Answer by Loren Cordain
- The New Evolution Diet by Art De Vany
These books are all good starting points, though they address different things, so it depends on who you are. If you don't care about science and want an easy to start plan, Mark Sisson's book is a good start. If you want something very detailed with lots of charts and graphs, Practical Paleo is awesome (it's good as an ebook, but the printed version is beautiful and it includes rip out infographics you can post on your fridge with magnets, so it's worth getting the paper one.)
I own them all, but there's a lot of overlap, and if you're not a book-science-geek (I am), you probably just want one to get going.
If you want a no-nonse book to get you started with quite a bit of science, get Robb Wolf's.
If you have specific health issues, I'd get Chris Kresser's book, and hopefully you can register it on his site to get all the bonus chapters which are worth much, much more than the book itself.
After that, get yourself a couple of cookbooks, like Nom-Nom-Paleo's or Make it Paleo, or Every Day Paleo, and you're set.
You can find all of these on amazon or B&N.

Can't help you with a YouTube channel. Sorry. But, you might want to check out this related question. Lots of good answers with books and blogs to check out.
